Those who WAIT upon the Lord! Aug 31, 2009
Although God Built is marketed toward men, any woman who has ever waited on God will find hope and strength between the manly covers of this book. My mixed (male and female) Bible study group has been studying a chapter a week for the last eight weeks. I found it impossible to read only a chapter a week and devoured the entire book in two days!
Steve Farrar has gotten to the heart of what it is to wait on God. The uncensored truth is it is HARD! Yet as Steve reminds us through the tale of Joseph, the wait is worth the reward. I'm currently in a waiting season in my life. God put this book in my hands just in time to remind me He will make this wait worth my while. Every day, every tear, every hurt and pain will be worth it!
Steve's ability to make Biblical characters come to life in the 21st Century is remarkable. He makes Joseph seem like...well...an average Joe! He's not larger than life, he's me...he's you...he's anyone who has ever been hurt while trying to do the right thing, has been demoted when you felt you should be promoted, or has felt like God has put you somewhere only to forget about you completely.
If you have been waiting on God and feel like giving up, don't! Pick up this book instead. Let Steve remind you that God will come through--when you least expect it!
Review for God Built Jul 28, 2009
Brief Summary: Mr. Farrar takes an in-depth look at the life of Joseph, a man who had to overcome immense odds before becoming an instrumental leader for God's kingdom and ultimately a leader for Egypt. From this spring board, Mr. Farrar applies the principles from Joseph's life to our lives reminding us that God is in control of all situations at all times.
Positive Elements: I personally enjoyed reading some of the short biographies of hero's from our nation's past and seeing how God worked through these men's life to forged them into the men he desired them to be. There were several "gems" in this book that makes it worth while read.
The life of Joseph explained and how God works in our lives Apr 27, 2009
This book is an excellent resource for understanding the way God works in our lives. The author uses the life of Joseph to explain how God uses our experiences, (especially the bad) and turns them into good for us. It is a very helpful and reassuring book to read and remember that even when life appears to us to be going all wrong, God IS in control and uses our negative experiences for our good and to show His Glory. This book has helped me personally gain a deeper understanding of how God works in our lives, even when He seems far away. I have recommended it to my friends who are going through tough times right now.
Very well written. Apr 24, 2009
I'm only about half way through this book, but I have completely enjoyed reading it. It is very 'scriptural' based, but written in a way that holds your attention. I actually purchased this book as gift's for five HS senior's that I coached. I believe that this would be an excellent book for any young person getting ready to leave home and start their new life on their own.
Read this book and change how you think about God's promise to bring good to those who love him Feb 20, 2009
A book that will established a new cornerstone for your life. Learn that it is ok, in fact, you would not want it any other way, that God is responsible for both the good and the evil that comes into our lives. Steve Farrar, in his down to earth style, has opened my eyes and freed me to better accept why "bad things happen to good people". Knowing that the God of the universe is in control is liberating and eternally comforting.
